Directed by John Kastner, this feature documentary about violence, mental illness, and the rights of victims tells the story of a troubled young man who stabbed a complete stranger 6 times in a crowded shopping mall while gripped by psychosis. Twelve years later, his victim, who miraculously survived, is terrified to learn that he’s out, living in the community under supervision. He’s applying for an absolute discharge, and if he succeeds, he’ll no longer be required to take the anti-psychotic drugs that control his mental illness. With unprecedented access to the patient, the victim, and the mental institution, the film looks at both sides of the debate and puts a human face on the complex ethical issues raised.

Ce film traite d'un sujet controversé. Pour public averti.

    Such a beautiful documentary which evoked such a wide variety of emotions. I went from feeling sorry for Sean to hating him to admiring him. It takes a big person to apologize for such an act, and it takes an even bigger person to accept that apology. The Bouvier family showed incredible understanding and grace which I don't often see in people who have no first-hand experience with mental illness. I had a niece with bipolar - she suffered for 14 years before taking her own life; it was just too painful for her to continue living. I am happy to see Sean fighting for his life.

    Saw the film at the Ottawa Public Library last night and met the family. Wow, what a story of the lost being found and the long journey through faith to forgiveness by a family broken by a crime. Thank you John Kastner! Awesome work.

    I have been waiting to see this for months! It was well worth the wait. Well-written, well-produced and very courageously presented by all who participated. My first response -- having just finished watching -- is that everyone involved is a victim. Sean is a victim of his upbringing and those who could have perhaps helped in time to prevent the illness from robbing him of his faculties. Catherine and her family are victims of ghastly circumstance. All are examples of exemplary and inspiring healing and rehabilitation. Thank you.

    I am REALLY looking forward to this film. I heard about it on CBC radio this morning. I work in a related field- and plan to watch this and share it with my coworkers. I will be watching for information about when and where it will be available for viewing.
